Professional profile

I am an experienced Private Consultant Dermatologist and an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester.

I attended schools in Manchester before going to Edinburgh University to study medicine, where I attained a first class honours degree in medical sciences. I undertook postgraduate medical training in Edinburgh and the Hammersmith Hospital, London. I received formal dermatology training in the dermatology units in Edinburgh and Manchester.

I undertook a one-year fellowship in the Medical University of South Carolina, in a world-renowned centre for urticaria research and treatment, and have set up the nationally recognised Manchester Urticaria Clinic at Salford Royal Hospital, which supports ongoing teaching and research.

I am frequently asked to speak at national and international meetings and conferences and sit on the North West Allergy and clinical Immunology Strategy Board. I contribute to national and international guidelines on urticaria and have published extensively in key dermatology and allergy journals. I am a core member of the Skin Cancer MDT at the dermatology centre in Salford.

I have contributed to National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines and have been consulted by various national media (TV, radio, newspapers) for dermatological issues. I have also acted as an advisor to drug companies for acne, adult acne (rosacea), antihistamines and urticaria.

Current research interests include the impact of dermatological problems on the quality of life, and the benefits of new biologic drugs in the treatment of skin disease.

I enjoy and have broad experience in all aspects of general dermatology including dermatological surgery and I aim to provide comprehensive, holistic and personalised care in a dignified and safe environment for all patients.
